How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Everything was in order at the box office and I picked up my tickets about a half hour early. There is a restaurant adjacent to the theater and at least four others within 150 yards of the front door. The crowd was very small on this Thursday evening and this may have contributed to the subpar performance. As with any Second City production the material is hit or miss, however the sketches were just not performed with the crispness and energy I associate with Second City. Except for the word association sketch, the improv portion in particular dragged on. I was very disappointed.
